.MKV playback!?

Will dvd and bluray be region-free, or can they include a (paid?) option to unlock it!?

Haha yeah mine is pretty embarrassing.. its got '69' in it -_- Hahaha

Why does it have to cost you to change your name? I don't understand this thinking from the younger generation. Changing your name should be something you can do for free. Microsoft have infiltrated everyones mind to think you have to pay to breath another breath.

if sony allowed ppl to watch mkv files on ps4 they would be in trouble big time, sony is trying to make money off ppl who buy bluray movies, etc, let alone letting us watch them for free on ps4 cause mkv is a bluray type of file.

It will probably play mkv videos but two minutes in you will get a cinavia banner and muted audio. I have a micro pc running xbmc (media centre os) to watch all video formats

just download MP4 files in the future, they're much better quality anyway =D and at a similar, if not the same size.
Hellsvacancy  +   573d ago
It's not that much of a bother if the PS4 doesn't support file types like that, i'm used to plugging my laptop into my TV (hdmi) anyway, that's not likely to change

I forgot about the Cinavia thing

What type of HDD is required to upgrade to a bigger HDD.
M-M  +   574d ago
2.5 Sata most likely.
Lubu  +   573d ago
That's the thing though, there hasn't been confirmation. I'd like to have a HDD ordered and ready to install as soon as I boot up the system. So a confirmation sooner rather than later would allow me to get the best deal so I'm not pressed at the last minute to try to get one.

What is to come from your deal with Viacom?
Will PS4 get HBO Go app?
nevin1  +   574d ago
Why would anyone use their real name?
THC CELL  +   574d ago
Why would people use there real name on Facebook. and they will be a option for u to show friends only
NobleRed  +   574d ago
Why does no one asks what kind of the data bus the PS4 supports?

I need a SATA 3 confirmation.
steve30x  +   574d ago
It could possibly use SATA Express which is faster than SATA III https://www.sata-io.org/sat... It could use SATA 3.2 http://www.bit-tech.net/new...

I am hoping SATA III though because a SATA III SSD in there would make it super fast. I am using a SATA II SSD in my computer (My three year old motherboard doesnt support SATA III) and ist very fast already so I would think a SATA III SSD in the PS$ would make it lightning fast.

What are the AAA titles they are working on that is proof they are returning to the a golden age like we had with PS 1 and 2? Sony used to have a counter move for everything the compitition had. It was Virtua Figher vs Toshinden and Tekken. Sonic and Nights vs Spiro and Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Dexter and Ratchet and Clank. Ikaruga vs Omega Boost. Phantasy Star vs FF VII. I remember getting Xenogears and Metal Gear Solid in the same month and it was like overload on quality. No one on the corner had Swager like Sony. Variety and Quality was there strong point. They need another Devil May Cry (The original), or buy exclusive Metal Gear Rising like what Nintendo did with Bayoneta. Make power moves like when MS locked down Ikaruga for Xbox arcade, like make Guarding Heroes from Tresure for PSN. Show us they are in this to win this, and start trending toward if they announce a game, bringing it out at least within one year, instead of three and five. Every time they miss a release date could lead to someone doing something stupid with their money and buying an Xbox like I did.

How many profiles can we have at first ps3 had 5 it's now 2
Nekroo91  +   574d ago
your actually asking how many consoles can you activate your profile to share games...

Can we please turn the blue light off on the back of the controller?

That's going to be a distraction to me & it'll attract moths when I play at night with the lights off-- hahaha!

Seriously, I'd prefer to turn it off rather than having it on all the time-- this is especially true when I'm playing a single player game all by myself.

I just don't see why it is there in the first place.

shivvy24  +   573d ago
i think it wont be a big distraction but i do agree, there should be an option, i doubt they will add a switch on the controller so maybe on settings

I want to know if a SUB account can be finally changed into a MASTER account on the PS4, if a person takes over there PSN account to the new console and he or she is now over the age of 18. For those who were kids back when the PS3 first came out, and who are now Adults over 18 years of age, don't have that option to change there existing limited sub account and upgrade it into a full master account, even if they are now independent adults with a job and credit card etc. That situation is frustrating to say the least. My son is in that category and he is now 19 years of age and has invested lots of trophy time over the last 6 years, so he doesn't want to loose his trophy level and progression, that he has earned over the years and doesn't feel like it's fair that he should have to open up a new account and have to start again from scratch. Surely there should be an option as soon as someone turns 18 to change from SUB to a MASTER account. He can't even log onto and link to his facebook through his PSN account because of the sub account status. Surely this was an over sight by Sony back in the day and shouldn't be to hard to implement a fix. Why hasn't this option been rectified and added over the years? Doesn't Sony realize that kids turn into Adults one day? LOL.. Please sort this oversight as soon as possible.

I want to know what CPU speed the PS4 will have.
steve30x  +   573d ago
How quiet will it be. I bought a Blue ray player because my PS3 was too loud while watching movies
